The Woz is my hero
Take a trip back to the days of the Apple II, Steve Wozniak's gift to the world. This is one of the computers that started the entire PC industry and totally transformed large and small business and home computing to what we know today. The Woz is pure genius. Little did he know at the time, but the entire world would be forever changed by the PC he designed described as the "computer I wanted for myself". The way we do business and communicate with each other in this electronic world would have been completely different today if it wasn't for the Apple II.
